Why travel to France?

Whether it’s a quick trip to Calais on the Eurostar, a romantic weekend in Paris, or a tour of Normandy, Nice and St-Tropez, France is a country that offers something for everyone. Is it the food and wine that attracts you? The history and culture? Or maybe it’s the balmy southern coast, the skiing in the Alps or even Disneyland Paris? Whatever appeals, you’re sure to have a great time.

Why do I need travel insurance in France?

  • Going skiing/snowboarding? - Cover against loss, damage or theft of your winter sports equipment
  • Come here often? - You could save money by taking out annual multi-trip cover instead of single
  • Repatriation – If you get injured or fall seriously ill and have to be flown back to the UK

 Get covered for:

  • Medical treatment - Can be costly if you don't have medical cover while you're away
  • Airline insolvency - Useful cover in case your airline goes bust before your trip
  • Loss of personal possessions - Consider getting your items covered in case they are lost, stolen or damaged

France: Checklist

- European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) - This entitles you to the necessary medical treatment at a reduced cost, sometimes even for free while you are in France (it’s part of the European Economic Area). As well as having EHIC, a valid travel insurance gives you an extra level of protection. Don't forget to apply for EHIC if you don't already have it.

- Thinking of driving in France? - Don’t forget that your driving licence and car insurance documents should be on you at all times when you're behind the wheel in France, and most importantly don’t forget to drive on the right-hand side of the road! For more information about speed limits and driving guidelines -  check out our guide to driving in France.

- Getting around - You can travel by train, by Metro, drive or even bike around France. Many large cities like Paris offer a free bike scheme for a short period of time.
